A 4.5 million dollar upgrade of the Red Willow bridge is slated to begin later this month.
The project, which will see the existing concrete deck replaced with a new steel panel deck, is slated to wrap up by October, weather permitting.
The work is slated to begin May 27th, at which time traffic on the bridge will be restricted to an alternating, single lane, directed by traffic lights.
Drivers are also reminded that the speed limit will be reduced to 30 km an hour during construction.
Some prep work is already underway on the bridge, located south of Beaverlodge in Highway 722.
Because of that, the speed limit on the bridge is currently 60 km an hour, but will be reduced to 30km an hour when workers are present.
